Burn Morels: Find and Collect Mushrooms in Old Forest Fires

With Mushroom Hunters: Trent and Kristen Blizzard

As the forest regenerates in the year following a forest fire, morel mushrooms are famous for thriving in the newly charred terrain. Learn how to locate and collect these choice edible fungi.

This presentation will demonstrate methods to find these elusive, choice edible fungi.

Locating ideal burn morel terrain starts online with topographic and satellite maps. Learn how to use online mapping tools for pre-trip research and in the field. Other factors that affect your likelihood of hunting success include weather, forest type, elevation, aspect, season and terrain. While discussing these elements, we will be sure to recommend some good gear and proper etiquette.

Trent and Kristen Blizzard have been chasing burn morels in the West for years, follow their adventures online at www.modern-forager.com.
